New Jersey Governor Chris Christie Loses 100 Pounds in One Year Thanks to Lap Band Surgery

New York Bariatric Group Has The Country’s Best Surgeons for Lap Band Surgery

New Hyde Park, NY – New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has lost 100 pounds in just over a year since he underwent lap band surgery, another dramatic and phenomenal success story for a high profile individual.

Governor Christie weighed approximately 420 pounds in February 2013 when he had his lap band surgery performed. Now, he is a century lighter on the scales, weighing in at 320 pounds, which means he has already lost as much as 45 percent of his excess body weight.

For Christie, surely his advisors believe this will help him in the polls. More importantly though, undergoing bariatric surgery will prove to be life-changing and extending for Christie, offering superior health and reduced risks of many major obesity-related conditions and illnesses, from cardiovascular disease to diabetes.

Additional benefits will include improved energy levels, also important for Christie and any busy adult who’s juggling the myriad responsibilities of work and family. The latest improvements to lap band procedures not only offer spectacular results, but also reduced needs for recovery, allowing patients to get back to their lives in less time than ever.
